Private Helicopter Profile – Agusta 109

Originally conceived in the late 1960’s by the Italian company Agusta, the AW109 has gone from strength to strength ever since. Following the merger with British company, Westland Helicopters in 2000, the helicopter was rebranded the Agusta Westland 109 (AW109).
With constant development and improvement including a regular introduction of new avionics and engine technologies. The fantastic Agusta Westland 109 (AW109) helicopter has a real pedigree and is one of the best selling civil helicopters in history. The AW109 has been in continuous production for 40 years and one of the most popular helicopters available on today’s charter market.

Versatility & Design

The AW109 fulfils a wide variety of roles from aeromedical, law enforcement, search and rescue and other military roles. The most common configuration however, is the VIP set up. The VIP version of the AW109 helicopter features 5 or 6 seat rear cabin with comfortable leather seats and a modern feel. The rear cabin has a face to face seating layout and large windows offering great views. The cockpit has two seats allowing one passenger can also ride up front if being flown single crew.


The AW109 range depends on the number/weight of passengers and bags and whether the helicopter is being flown by one pilot or two. Typically with 4 passengers and light luggage, the helicopter can fly approximately 90 minutes. The AW109 is suitable for rotors running refuelling which takes around 10 minutes. Meaning for those longer trips, the AW109 is an efficient and practical choice.

Private Jet Travel During Covid 19

Travel across the world has been disrupted significantly due to the Covid 19 outbreak. Earlier in the year, travel was mainly only possible within countries or to re-patriate passengers. However, as countries began to ease their travel restrictions, either due to falling cases or to bolster tourism economies. We have started to see leisure and business travel begin to return, albeit at lower than normal levels. As we wait for a vaccine, rapid testing or the eventual disappearance of Covid 19, flying by private jet is a great way to travel while continuing to mitigate your exposure risk to Covid 19.

Private Jet Travel During Covid 19

How Does Private Jet Travel Reduce Exposure To Covid 19?

Many of the benefits to private jet travel directly translate into reducing exposure risk, these include;

  • Dedicated use of the aircraft for you and your family – No sitting near strangers on large aircraft for long periods.
  • Arrive at the airport minutes before you fly and leave the airport moments after landing – Dedicated security and immigration channels reduce waiting time to the bare minimum.
  • Flying from private terminals where possible – No need to be amongst large crowds for long periods.
  • Private jets are regularly sanitised – The frequency of cleaning regimes has increased due to Covid 19 to further reduce risk.
  • Crew members and private terminal staff wear PPE and socially distance as much as practicable.

Some travel restrictions are still in place across Europe and the World and these change regularly. Our dedicated team is ready to help you with any Covid 19 travel restrictions and potential quarantine requirements. Contact us today and we will help you with checking the feasibility of any trip.
